this past weekend was the first i’ve taken off from work in a while, and i’m so happy about it. Extravaganja was pretty great. Handed out some stickers and played in a drum circle and just marveled at how beautiful the day was. The lectures at Psympsium sat/sun were all really insightful and unbiased, and the sound meditation portion put me in another world. Corbin, Andrew, and I took awesome hoop/crazy stick/dance breaks outside in the sun and smoked endless bowls till the lectures started back up again! The lecture by Lawrence Millman about the “Ritual use of Amanita muscaria in Siberia” was one of my favorite talks. There were talks about MDMA, PCP, Ketamine, and even Peyote and Ayahuasca. And Dennis Mckenna’s talk about “Plant and human symbiosis and the origins of imagination” was pretty mind opening.
